Centennial Trails

Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 4

This is not too advanced to scare anyone away but really fun to ride! Lots of up/down hills, open fields on the beginner loop. Also includes an Intermediate and Advanced loop, each with steeper hills and faster downhills. On municipal parkland.

Summary:
I was surprised to find Centennial (King City) is a decent beginner-intermediate trail so close to me (I live 15 min. away in Woodbridge) yet I didn't know it was there. Middle and Difficult loops are similar to much of the single track trails at Albion Hills. These curved trails with lots of switch-backs and nice berms were nicely and carefully cut through the hilly forest, and make for a nice, smooth, not-to-difficult ride.

There are a number of short-cuts and branch tracks that run straight east to west, that run straight up and down the hills and provide a bit more cardio challenge for the hill climbers. These are nice because they probably double the amount of trail length from 5km to 10km.

At first, it's easy to get lost because the intersections between the short-cut and main tracks are not marked, but then you soon recognize the distinctive look of the main track with gentle curves and switch-backs, and know which way to go.

Also, you need to know that green markers are easy, blue is middle, and black is hard.

Overall, a little short, but nice if you live nearby and only have an hour or so to ride.

I congratulate the people of the small town of King City for putting this trail together. Where I live in Woodbridge, with thousands of acres of Humber river flood plain with great potential for trails, and a much bigger population, there is no effort to construct any bike trails other than a gravel path which dead ends at busy 4 lane roads.

I'm giving King Centennial a 4 out of 5 mainly because it's very good for what it is - a short little municipal trail that's well made, and it's free.

Summary:
As the above description indicates, the trail does not have any elements that are too challenging that would scare anyone off. It is a system of 3 stacked loops from the beginner loop to an intermediate to an advanced. There seem to be short cuts throughout to get to the more advanced trail, but doing the loops in a progression is good for warming up and cooling down. A decent ride for an hour or so, but not enough to keep you busy for a day. The trails flow nicely with a few switchbacks.

Recommended Route:
Coming from the south (Toronto), I took 400 North to King Road. East on King Road to to Jane Street (first intersection). North on Jane, the entrance to the parking lot is on the right side (east side of Jane). Look for a radio tower and stone gates into the parking lot. Ample parking at the trailhead.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hardwood Hills to the north (Barrie)
Albion Hills to the west (Bolton)
Durham Forest to the east (Uxbridge)
Don Valley to the south (Toronto)
